?INTRODUCTION
?
RECOGNIZE THE TREASURES YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN AND THOSE THAT ARE OUT THERE FOR YOU

I’m a psychic and a medium, which means it is both my calling and my work not only to connect people on the physical plane with loved ones in the world of spirit but also to help my clients discover why their lives might not be as rich and fulfilling as they had hoped, and sometimes to help them make the changes that will lead them down a different, more rewarding path.

It took me a long time before I was able to acknowledge my psychic gift as something to be treasured. I didn’t accept what I’d been given as a blessing. Like many people, I was allowing my fears to get in the way of my success. I was afraid of being seen as different or even weird. I thought people might be afraid to talk to me because they’d think I was reading their minds. Over the years, however, I’ve come to understand that my psychic abilities allow me to help people improve their lives; once I was able to embrace that truth, my own life became richer and more meaningful as well. What I’ve learned in the course of my own journey and now want to share with you is that life for every one of us is like a giant treasure chest just waiting to be filled with all the gifts we’ve been given and the new treasures that are out there for us to collect, if only we are willing to embark on an exciting, if sometimes scary, journey of discovery.

Why scary? Because like any journey into uncharted territory, it takes us out of our comfort zone. It’s just easier for most of us to cling to what’s familiar, even if it isn’t making us happy. We live in a society that has conditioned us to expect the worst instead of the best. Turn on your television or pick up the paper any day of the week and you’re sure to be bombarded with messages of gloom and doom. From the weather to the economy, the media know that bad news sells. And once all that bad news takes up residence in our subconscious minds, it’s what we come to believe. As a result, we all tend to operate from a place of fear—especially fear of change.

If there’s anything I’ve learned as a psychic, however, it’s that the mind is a powerful tool. Whatever we can conceive with our minds we can manifest in our lives. Change your mind and you can change your life. The key is to let go of the fear that may be keeping you stuck in a rut, believe that it’s possible to change, and then empower yourself to make it happen.

In times past, psychics were sometimes called “intuitives.” Another old word for psychic is “clairvoyant,” meaning “one who sees clearly.” In truth, however, we are all born with intuition and the ability to see clearly. We all have the capacity to focus our energy and tune into what’s working or not working for us, figure out why, and then make the adjustments that will help us create more positive results in the future.

To help you learn how to do this, I suggest that you think about it in terms of electrical energy. We put a plug in a socket and the light or the television or the computer springs to life. But that energy is always out there, whether we’re plugged into it or not. Ironically, the more plugged in we’ve become, the more disconnected we are from the invisible energy that’s within and all around us. Your thoughts, like everything else in the universe, have energy. What you need to do is plug in the radio of your mind and tune it to the right frequency. What I’m going to be doing in this book is help you to reconnect with your own psychic energy so that you can begin to make the most of the valuable gifts you’ve been given and attract the many treasures that are out there for the taking.

Of course, if you think of your life as a treasure chest, you must realize that there is only so much room available. Therefore, to fill it with what is truly valuable, you will probably need to discard some of the fool’s gold you’ve been hoarding. That means letting go of old fears, anger, grievances, or misconceptions that may have been taking up space in your mind so that you can make room for the new beliefs about yourself and the universe that will take you to new levels of peace and achievement of purpose.

In my first book, The Psychic in You, I helped people tap into their ability to connect with those in the world of spirit. In this book I’m going to help you connect more deeply with yourself. I often tell people that our present is governed by our past and that we need to get in touch with the past and then shift our conscious and unconscious beliefs about it so we can act differently now and create a better future for ourselves.

I believe that there are six basic keys to unlocking life’s treasures, the first of which is to examine yourself and, with honesty and clarity, determine what it is about yourself and your life that makes you happy right now and what it is you would like to get rid of or improve. Grabbing hold of that key and putting it in the lock might take some courage, because you might be reluctant to look too closely at the potentially toxic stuff you’ve been storing in the attic of your mind. But it’s going to be worth it, because once you’ve brought all that stuff out into the daylight and let it go, you’ll feel lighter and freer and better able to begin the rest of your journey of discovery.

After doing the self-examination, there are five more keys—important areas we all need to work on in order to make our lives better.

The second key is to examine all of our relationships—those with people who are in our daily lives right now as well as with those with people who have passed on to the world of spirit. We all have relationships we need to treasure as well as those that fill us with negativity and self-doubt. I’ll be helping you not only to figure out which is which but also to let go of the ones that are keeping you from thriving.

The third key is to make certain that your actual physical environment—your home and your place of work—are really working for you. The ancient Chinese understood very well how every aspect of your physical space can affect your health and well-being. You may not have thought that a physical space has energy, but it does. In this section we’ll be looking at how you can use a bit of psychic feng shui to change that energy and create an environment that enhances your peace and prosperity and maximizes the flow of positive energy in your life.

The fourth key area we need to think about is how to bring more prosperity into our lives. On some level, of course, this means increasing material wealth. But there’s more to prosperity than money. As I hope to make you understand, discovering your true path and following your passion will be not only the surest but also the most fulfilling way to increase your wealth and well-being.

The fifth key is to increase your spiritual strength. Some of you may already be affiliated with an organized religious community. But spirituality does not require you to follow any particular belief system or attend a particular house of worship. All that’s required is for you to find a way to affirm your belief in a higher power—however you choose to conceive of and envision that power—which will help you to internalize your faith that whatever comes into your life happens for a purpose. As you’ll discover, we are all born with spirituality; we just need to believe in it, treasure it, and work at developing what we’ve been given.

And, finally, the sixth key is to achieve the balance we all seek in our lives by ensuring that we nourish our emotional and physical well-being. The mind and body have powerful effects on each other; what strengthens one also benefits the other, and when one suffers they both feel the pain. The key here is to control your emotions and take care of your body. Not only will I be helping you understand that you have the power to take charge of your emotions, I will also be helping you develop the tools you need to do it. And I’ll be showing you how and why taking care of your physical health will positively impact your mental outlook.

To help you remain focused and increase your understanding as you explore these six keys, you’ll find brief aphorisms marked “A Word to the Wise” placed throughout the book. I hope you’ll use these words to inspire you and affirm your intentions.

Some locks are stickier than others; sometimes it’s harder to turn the key and open the door to discovery. There are treasures behind all these doors, so if one is stubbornly refusing to yield, please do whatever it takes to unlock it.

One thing I’ve learned is that there are many ways to achieve a particular goal. As you’ll see, I’ve taken what I can from a variety of philosophies and belief systems. You may be more comfortable with one suggestion or method than another, and that’s okay. I just urge you to keep an open mind and not reject any possibility simply because it’s new or unfamiliar.

I invite you to open yourself up, look at every aspect of your life, and use all the tools I’ll be giving you to discover your personal treasures and make your life as valuable as it can be.
